Honestly, a Mr Beer kit isn't going to get your feet wet in brewing. There's no comparison at all. Not trying to discourage you, but 99% of homebrewers are going to recommend a real starter kit instead of a Mr Beer kit. That kit doesn't really introduce you to the processes that go down. Sure, it sorta follows how beer is made, but it's so grossly simplified that you won't feel as if you've really learned a whole lot, and the beer quality has never been good out of those kits.
The main problem is that once you've done the Mr Beer kit, you're likely to be turned off by the end product.
